An elderly woman is facing foreclosure in the place she has called home for most of her life.
Ninety-year-old Rosalee Green has lived in her Southwest Miami-Dade residence about 57 years, the majority of her life. However, the nonagenarian may be evicted from her home due to a code violation. “I’ve been here this long. Where am I going to go? I’m 90 years old,” said Rosalee Green. “I want to stay in my house.”
Green was recently served with papers that said she defaulted on a reverse mortgage, which allowed her to take a lump-sum payment against her home’s equity without having to pay back the money. “They said that I didn’t have to pay anything until, if I die, whoever lives here would take over, and so, I figured that was it,” she said.
